Polish rider Karolina Winkowska has been going from strength to

 strength since she first began kiteboarding in her summer holidays in
 2004. With a family who are “addicted to watersports” and background
 success in extreme sports (she was Polish junior champion in boarder
 cross and big air snowboarding) it’s no surprise Karolina has made it
 to the PKRA winner’s podium.

 2005 saw Karolina debut on the PKRA scene finishing 5th in the Brazil
 event and gaining her first sponsors “Roxy” and “Naish”. This was her
 first taste of international competition but by 2008, she had earned
 herself two consecutive 2nd places on the PKRA podium, won the 2008
 Chile event, and gained another big sponsor “Ford”. She was on top of
 her game, however Karolina’s luck was about to change and her 2009
 season was severely threatened by a crash in Brazil which left her
 with a broken leg, “Not only did I have a broken leg but I also had to
 finish my high school education, so I needed to study a lot during
 this time which meant I couldn’t go to the beach or kite. I had only 3
 weeks kiting time during the winter.”

 Thankfully Karolina managed a fast recovery and was back on the water
 within the year showing us the powerful and fearless style we know her
 so well for... and back on the PKRA winner’s podium by the end of the
 season finishing in third place overall.

 Her explanation for her success in the sport? “Kitesurfing is my
 passion, the thing that I do basically for pleasure.” This is made
 very clear as she is never seen on the beach without a smile on her
 face. She currently manages to maintain a healthy balance between
 Kiteboarding and her language studies whilst remaining one of the most
committed and fun loving female riders on tour.
